Tania Bonham is the Aboriginal Workforce Manager at SWSLHD and has been involved in the recruitment of the GradStart program for a number of years. As the 2021 GradStart applications come to a close, Tania delivered an information session which covered details around what recruiters are looking for in candidates, and the types of questions to expect in the interview. This session was delivered online via Zoom and was specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in their final year of the Bachelor of Nursing at UOW, giving them targeted advice and support. Students Ashleigh Jarrett, Denise Gaskell and Suzie Bull participated in this 2 hour virtual session.
Following this session, WIC Student Employability Coordinator, Caitlin Stuart, is offering CV assistance and 1:1 mock interviews to further assist students in preparing for the GradStart interview panels which occur from mid-August.
Good luck to our deadly students who are in the process of submitting graduate program applications! Please reach out to the friendly WIC staff if you require any assistance with application processes.
